RESCUING MALNOURISHED BABIES

SPONSOR A BABY

The most tangible and practical way you can save a baby’s life is through directly sponsoring a baby, which provides the formula and nutritional needs for the baby of your choosing. Select the baby you would like to provide formula and healthy nutrition for.

Miracle Kachingwe Baby Formula Sponsorship

Miracle and Mark Kachingwe born twins from the mgombe district in the Nsundwe feeding center came to us on June 23, 2021.  Mark and Miracle were left vulnerable after their mother died.  Their mother had a cough the whole time she was pregnant and after delivering the babies was taken to surgery, as soon as the operation was over she died on the spot.  The father was also sick when she was pregnant and he died before the babies were born.

Currently, they are being taken care of by their aunt who has 4 children of her own and has been feeding the cow's milk that she buys from the shops in town but this is not good for the babies.  The twins also have 3 other siblings who were left vulnerable and are staying with the granny.  Their aunt does piece work to take care of them but it's not enough and she cannot afford formula, the babies hardly even have clothes or soap.  Their aunts husband is now threatening to leave them because he doesn't want to take responsibility for the babies.  We do not have their exact birth weight because there was no birth certificate recorded.

Would you consider sponsoring one or both of these sweet twin babies?

WHAT DOES YOUR SPONSORSHIP COVER?

This is the best question we can answer for each of our partners when they make the decision to save one of these orphaned babies.

First, know that 100% of your sponsorship dollars actually goes to the babies. A sponsorship provides real tangible things like daily formula, bottles, new clothes, medical care, and a porridge full of vita-meal. This may sound like the same story you have heard over and over again but rest assured it isn’t.

This sponsorship will save the life of the baby you just sponsored. We aren’t a ministry that gives a bowl of maize once per day and say we are feeding children.  The 2ndMilk children get the same nutrition daily that your children receive because at the end of the day we don’t feel they deserve anything less.

SIGNS OF ACUTE MALNUTRITION

Acute malnourishment comes in many forms and at times it can even be hard to see while other times it may be very hard for us to look at a child experiencing severe malnourishment. Sure, we have all seen the tiny baby with droopy skin and bones but we also see a lot of babies that are experiencing a protein deficiency called Kwashiorkor. This causes their stomachs to swell as well as their legs and feet.

HOW DOES FORMULA HELP?

We all know and understand that infants require either mothers milk or a formula that allows them to receive the nutrients and vitamins their bodies require for proper growth. We purchase our powdered formula in the countries we work in to help the local economy and allow our teams to have quick access to the truckloads of formula we purchase monthly.
